Galaxy Note III Photos Leak

Samsung’s Galaxy Note wasn’t the first smartphone to feature a massive display, but it was certainly the first to popularize the new “phablet” category. The second-generation model improved upon the first’s design in just about every way imaginable — except for build quality, as we noted in our Galaxy Note II review — and as such, we have high hopes for the third version, which is reportedly set to debut in early September. The Galaxy Note III’s design is still something of a mystery but gadget blog Techkiddy, which has had a few solid scoops in the past, on Monday published images of what it claims to be a prototype of Samsung’s next-generation phablet.

The final version will undoubtedly be much less boxy than the test model pictured in this leak, but the prototype likely gives us a good idea of the handset’s size. Techkiddy also mirrored earlier reports in claiming that the Galaxy Note III will feature a 5.7-inch full HD display, a 13-megapixel camera, 3GB of RAM and either an Exynos 5 Octa processor or a Snapdragon 800 chipset depending on region.
